If you are wondering how you can transform a room over the weekend, the next few lines will lend you a helping hand. The best place to start is painting the ceiling and walls. Nothing refreshes a room like a new lick of paint. You can add DIY ideas to spice things up in your room as well!

It's easier to upgrade your bedroom than you think and it doesn't take too much time either. Weekends are a perfect opportunity to turn your bedroom into a tranquil, inviting haven. The key is to add a combination of modern trendy elements and basic DIY designs which do not split the bank. Here are a few ways you can make your bedroom more upbeat -

Top To Bottom

The best place to start is painting the ceiling and walls. Nothing refreshes a room like a new lick of paint. If you’re happy with the current colour, simply touch up edges and skirting boards. Wallpaper is gaining traction this season, and looks great in any room. What’s more, there are so many designs and textures available to pick from.

Update the Floors

If you’re not happy with your current flooring, a simple solution is to add a large rug. Even on carpeted surfaces, the right rug can make your floor look new. Rugs are also great for warming your feet and making your room more comfortable. Choose something comfortable to add colour and warmth to your bedroom whether you are living with wood or tile flooring. Shop at a carpet shop for a roll end. Having the edges bonded doesn't cost much, plus you can roll the rug up during warm summer months. Pick up one large area rug or two smaller ones for either side of the bed as an option.

Introducing Style

Change up your current curtains. Heavy curtains can make a room look smaller and tired. Look for lightweight styles. Always go for curtains that blend well with your room. Make sure it falls in line with your paint change, rugs and furniture. As you see, curtains can transform your room completely in few short minutes. You can hire interior designers to help you get personalized curtains done!

Rearrange Furniture 

It is amazing how different your room might look with just a slightly different furniture arrangement. Shift your bed to a separate side, or move the dresser into a corner. Hang a full-length mirror at the door. You might discover a whole new chunk of space for your bedroom you didn't know you had.

Shelves for bedroom

Add a Shelf

A floating shelf in the bedroom is a convenient, space-saving storage option. 

Perfect for storing books, photographs and keepsakes, floating shelves can be placed directly above the bedside tables or above the bed itself, in a variety of different sizes that can make a wall more impactful. 

And the good news is that it's easy to tackle this project even if you don't have the DIY skills. Simply select a shelf with covered mounting fittings, from Ikea shelf which contains a bracket package, all fixings and the instructions.

Replace Old Bed Linen

Replacing old bedding really makes it feel like you have a new room.

For a luxurious and timeless look, introduce a set of pristine white or neutral sheets, and do not forget to add a selection of luxurious pillows. 

Add a lightweight throw at the end of the bed as a final touch to complete the look of having a luxurious bed to sleep in.

Make a headboard 

There's a simple workaround if you don't have a headboard, or if you feel like that the headboard has seen better days. A standard door is perfect for a king-size bed and can transform a twin mattress into a daybed. Choose a new hollow-core door from your local home store, or look for a rustic-looking, weathered door.

Using good metal L-brackets to tie the door firmly to the top and bottom of the building. Finish it off with a narrow strip of moulding at the top, or attach shelves for a custom treatment on either side.

Install Wall Mounted Night Lamps

Shine some light where it belongs by adding two sleek wall-mounted swing-arm lamps on each side of the bed, removing the need to use minimal lamp space for nightstands. The wall-mounts look amazing and put the light for reading in bed at just the right height. Prices vary, but we do recommend checking out contemporary lamps or online catalogues in a variety of styles for moderately priced lighting.

Feature Pieces

Finally, hang artworks to suit your room’s theme and walls. This will give your room that perfect finishing touch. Creation of a gallery wall is easy: refinish old, empty frames to show oddly-shaped photographs, medals, awards or smaller framed images. And add shelving and trim strips to hold pictures of the family, children's artwork, and small books.
